Supporting Children's Communication

There are lots of things you can do to encourage young people at this stage:

  • Encourage opportunities to talk without making them feel under pressure. 
  • Use opportunities for chatting, like mealtimes. 
  • Give everyone a chance to talk about their day, including you.
  • Help by explaining any words or phrases that they don’t understand.
  • Show that you are interested by making time to listen.
